Sunday, December 11

The kingdom of the heavens is like a dragnet let down into the sea and gathering fish of every kind. This is taken from Matthew 13:47.

Jesus likens the preaching of the kingdom message to all mankind to the lowering of a large dragnet into the sea. Just as such a net and discriminately catches large number of “fish are very kind,” preaching work attracts millions of people of all kinds. This is said that Isaiah 60:5 which states: “At the time you see him become the radiant, And your heart throb and overflow, Because the wealth of the sea will be attracted to you; The resources of the nations will come to you.”

Not all those attracted to the true will take a stand for Jehovah. Many have associated with us at our meetings. Others have been willing to study the Bible with us but are not willing to make the commitment. 1 Kings 18:21 tells us: “Then Elijah approached all the people and said: “how long will you be limping between two different opinions? If Jehovah is the true God, follow him; but if Ba’al is, follow him!” But the people did not say word in answer to him.”

Still others are no longer associating with the Christian congregation. Some youths have been raised by Christian parents and yet have not developed a love for Jehovah’s standards. No matter what the situation, Jesus emphasized that everyone needs to make a personal decision. Those who do are viewed by him as “the precious,” or “desirable,” things “of all the nations.” This is taken from Haggai 2:7.
